How to avoid an Easter packaging pile-up
The Easter weekend brings countless chocolate eggs, family get-togethers, and a couple of extra days off work. But it also means households create more waste through seasonal packaging, or feel tempted to tackle overdue home improvements – and rubbish can quickly pile up.
Here are some ideas you might find handy this Easter holiday…
Consider booking a skip
With spring in the air and time on your hands, you may find yourself reaching for the gardening gloves – or even (finally!) clearing out the shed.
And take our word for it: there’s nothing worse than using up all your energy getting that done, only to find yourself with another big job just to deal with the waste afterwards.
With 5 sizes available, our skips provide the ideal solution for your soil, gravel, unwanted household items and whatever else you’re disposing of.
Our friendly team offer speedy skip delivery and prompt collection, plus we recover 98% of the materials from a typical domestic skip so you can rest assured you’re choosing a sustainable option.
Refresh your memory on recycling rules
Our top 3 Easter tips:
1) Packaging from Easter eggs is generally 100% recyclable and can go straight in your recycling bin.
2) Hot cross bun bags remain unrecyclable. So pop them in your general waste bin instead to avoid contaminating recyclables.
3) Don’t forget to collapse all your recycling before disposing of it to free up space in your container.
Wondering how we can help your business over Easter as well as your household?
